A little history - I started 3 websites in June, basically dropped 2, and the one I'm focusing on is now getting about 100 UV a day. I started by writing 8 or 9 articles, then I've basically been building backlinks through submitting small articles to other blogs and doing blog commenting. Other than the initial 8, I've written two more high-quality 1000+ word articles for my site, but other than that it's pretty much just been backlinks.
Is there a reason to focus more on content generation, at least up to a certain point? I know some people recommend getting 20 or so articles up on your website before you start trying to build traffic. How important is it for me to create more content vs build more backlinks?
